On Easter Monday, the church of Domois in Fénay was desecrated and ransacked. Intruders shattered doors, broke objects, scattered candles, flowers, tablecloths, and religious symbols, church furniture and other items were destroyed. Tabernacles were opened and consecrated hosts were trampled and scattered all over.

Тhe parish priest deplored the act of vandalism saying that it must have been a deliberate offense. He went to the gendarmerie brigade Gevrey-Chambertin on Tuesday and filled a complaint. The investigation was opened and police staff have examined fingerprints from the scene.
